At first, through hitting clubs solo, singer/guitarist Tania Bowers created a strong Chicago fan base. Since then, an international following has exploded and MTV labeled Bowers “an absolute gem.” Her Indie debut, Moon Sweet Moon, was co-produced by Craig Ross (known for work with Spoon and Emmylou Harris). Originally from Sydney, Australia, Bowers delivers a sweet batch of sexy muscle — carefully planned, catchy songs coated with strangeness. Heavily layered with curious sounds, she embraces the “outsider” role; the result is smart as hell, an otherworldly, dreamy soundscape that’s anything but wimpy.
